network manager - conflicts in updating

Post#1 by aus9 » 13 Jan 2016, 09:55

Hi

anyone to add please

today's updates borked with a conflict to a package called dcadec. First I unchecked that package to use gui to update the rest

so then I tried in command mode as root

Code: Select all

pacman -Syu
:: Synchronizing package databases...
 core is up to date
 extra is up to date
 community is up to date
 multilib is up to date
:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...

Packages (1) dcadec-0.2.0-1

Total Installed Size:   0.26 MiB
Net Upgrade Size:      -0.01 MiB

:: Proceed with installation? [Y/n] y

(1/1) checking for file conflicts                                                  [################################################] 100%
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
dcadec: /usr/lib/libdcadec.so.0 exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
2) there is a wiki for this type of error
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/pa ... 9.22_error

as I have no fear ( or I am an idiot take your pick) :D
I elected to try this and do a full reboot....so far all is good....done as root

Code: Select all

pacman -Syu --force
file manager at /var/cache/pacman/pkg shows only the updated package version

I am currently using another method instead of above which achieves the same effect which is to allow update of package named

done as root.....swapped from a changes cheatcode to a no changes cheatcode

Code: Select all

rm -rf /usr/lib/libdcadec.so.0
pacman -S dcadec
